Eric & Bruce Travel To Britain | Educational Adventure App for Kids
✔ iPad + iPhone | kids app for ages 2-5+ years
The new kids app “Eric & Bruce – Travel to Britain” invites kids to an interesting journey around Britain. The app is mainly aimed at toddlers and younger children, but the gorgeous animations and scenes know how to enchant adults too. The interactive journey is now available for iPad and iPhone and also works well without narration and text, which also makes it possible for foreign kids to go on an adventurous journey to Britain with Eric and Bruce.
Many Sights and Landmarks
The Travel of the little boy Eric and his little dog Bruce to Britain, is presented as a big Hidden Objects world. Whilst slowly riding his bike across the landscape, Eric drives past a whole lot of British sights and landmarks such as, Buckingham Palace, Tower Bridge and the biggest Ferris wheel in Europe – the London Eye.
Many objects and figures that Eric meets along his journey, hold a little surprise for children. According to the App Store description, there are over 50 interactive hidden objects in the games world to be discovered and explored, which come to life via finger-touch. The Tower Bridge for example, can be opened in order for a ship to pass through it.
Also many figures populate the interactive games world and give some indication as to who kids are dealing with, via typical actions, gestures and other activities. However, most of the time whilst testing the app, kids weren’t able to guess who those figures were meant to be. They did not for example know, who was crossing the zebra crossing whilst making funny gestures. So the allusion to the Beatles would therefore rather please adult viewers.
Eric & Bruce | Kids App Rating
Eric & Bruce – Travel to Britain is a very interesting discovery game for toddlers and young children with awesome animations and a beautifully detailed interactive landscape. We haven’t even mentioned a whole range of features of the app yet. Kids can also change the weather conditions whenever they like i.e. letting it rain, whereupon the figures open up their umbrellas.
In four special scenes, Eric even gets off his bike to take a break in a Cafe, or has a little Irish folk dance. We really like these detailed scenes.
YouTube Video Preview
In our YouTube video we take you on a little journey around Britain and show you some of the highlights of the first Eric & Bruce app, by the way, more apps have already been announced.
It is a bit of a pity, that the various sights, places and people aren’t being named in the app. Many objects need to be named in advance, in order to be recognized in the game. Here we still see some considerable development potential for the first and all of the following travels of Eric & Bruce. Narration would already make the app a lot more educational and could also be perfectly complemented by a small glossary. So it remains the responsibility of the parents, to explain the shown elements, for example, what is Stonehenge all about, or the emerging yellow submarine built in 1966.
(+) Interesting journey for kids
(+) Lots of animations
(+) Cute graphics
(-) No explanations, narration or a glossary.
